First Call is sponsored by United Rail Inc. in support of our wounded veterans, now returned home. We support them and are committed to first seeking qualified candidates for our open positions first from those wounded veterans who served. Our EVP of Industrial development, Wayne Bailey, served in the US Army in Vietnam and was twice wounded and received the Bronze Star for his defense of his airbase during the Tet Offensive.
We are well represented here by two veterans, also of the Army, Major David Robertson, and Captain Randy Zahn who serve as the co-chair of our First Call project. We are honored to have them on board.
In the months to come, they will be sponsoring several initiatives for the project including an employment awareness for jobs within the rail industry, a wounded veterans fund to support families of disabled veterans, and an educational program to train veterans for jobs in our industry.
Keep tuned to this site for more information.
